With a commitment to creating a culture that we believe is necessary to achieve the publishing excellence that is core to the University of Nebraska Press mission, we embrace a code of conduct that governs all of our collaborations. To that end, the Press actively sustains a positive environment in which its staff, authors, reviewers, media, vendors, and other partners may participate in the business of scholarly publishing in an exemplary professional manner. This environment is defined by constructive relationships, equity and inclusion, and mutual respect. As such, the Press will not tolerate discrimination or harassment as outlined in the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s Non-Discrimination and Anti-Harassment Policy, as well as illegal, dishonest, or unethical professional conduct.
As guiding principles of conduct, we commit to a positive, professional, sensitive, and supportive environment, free of abuse, discrimination, and harassment of others. We commit to hold challenging discussions of differences in a professional, nonconfrontational manner and with respect to a diversity of viewpoints. We expect our staff, our authors, and all of our collaborators to conduct themselves in a professional and courteous manner in all facets of their professional lives. When such expectations are not met, it may become necessary for the Press to take appropriate action, including the termination of partnerships that we believe violate or challenge our ability to achieve a positive culture of collaboration and responsibility.
If there is a belief that this outlined Code of Conduct has been violated, please contact the Director of the Press at 402-472-2861, or the University of Nebraska Director of Employee Relations at 402-472-8076 to discuss the matter.
